Welcome to Harbor Models Inc.

Manufacturer - Harbor Models

Most Harbor Models' kits are large and kings of the water. With ships like the Invader and Mr Dardy which can pull up to 800 lbs these kits are extremely powerful.

All Harbor Models' kits are considered "semi-kits". "Semi-kit" means all parts are supplied to create a static model, running gear is optional and extra. In all kits you will receive a hand laid up fiberglass hull, accommodations, pilot house and smoke stacks. They will also include a fittings set complete with doors, hatches, portholes, fire hoses, life rings and other small accessories to spruce up your boat. These vary depending on the kit so investigate the fittings supplied on the boat's information page. All kits also include full size plans and image set so you can get as detailed as you'd like.
Please feel free to contact us for more details or with any questions.

Mr Darby Kit
The kit includes:
High strength fiberglass hull. This hull has the same dimensions as the original Dumas version, but the similarities end there. This magnificent hull is made with two layers of hand-laid-up (not choper gun applied) fiberglass. This construction method creates an extremely heavy duty hull that can easily support the 65lb ballasted weight of the model. Kort nozzles can be easily and securely screwed to the hull because of the seriously thick fiberglass. The hull also features built-in anchor wells, orientation lines for bow thruster installation, and dimples indicating drilling points for prop shafts, kort nozzles, rudders and support beams for ease of build.

Hull specs:
Length: 46" Beam: 13" Scale: ~1:30
